You're right. However, I was wondering if there were a solution that
would be both simple and stay in the view.

As a matter of fact, form_for figures the method out just fine and so
does semantic_form_for (from Formtastic). For admin backends, however,
I'm using the "show view" for deleting resources as well, so the method
should be :delete then. And that's when - and *only* when - I'd need to
pass it.

I like Cory's one liner, it's an acceptable solution for the time being.
Thanks, Cory!
